Simon James first book, The Day Jake Vacuumed, was published in 1989 - and two more books about Jake soon followed. "My Friend Whale", was the first of several concerned with a child's relationship with the natural world - "Dear Greenpeace", "Sally and the Limpet", "The Wild Woods" and "The Birdwatchers" have established Simon as one of the country's leading author/illustrators. "Leon and Bob" won the Smarties Book Prize Silver Award and was the New York Times' Best Illustrated Book of the Year, and "Days Like This", a collection of small poems, was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. "Baby Brains" was the overall winner of the Red House Children's Book Award in 2005, voted for by 25,000 children. Simon continues to be a much sought-after speaker in schools, and at festivals and conferences both in the UK and in the USA. He continues to enjoy international success with his latest books, George Flies South and Nurse Clementine. His latest title, due out next year is called Rex, a book about dinosaurs and adoption!

Format: Paperback
This is a gentle book of a little girl taking a walk with her grandad in the woods and wanting to take a squirrel home, and grandad trying to disuade her. The illustrations are lovely. Some pages are just pictures, with lots to see. This book is great to read to a child, and for a child who cannot yet read to be able to tell the story back from the pictures.
It gives a message of conservation, but doesn't ram it down your throat.
It is very good value for money.

I love this book - it's that simple. It makes me smile everytime to see Jess bounding along with the squirrel. Her energy is wonderful. Simon James' pictures and text make the adventure jump out at you. Recommened for grandfathers all over!

Nice, simple story beautifully told with loose and lively illustrations. The relationship between the child and her grandfather is captured perfectly as is the fun to be had in exploration. The underlying message is delivered subtly.

I was recommend this by my daughter, as our youngest grandson had borrowed it from the library and it had really made them laugh. It's about the struggle of a grandad to keep up with his little grandaughter 'Jess' during a walk in the Wild Woods. As my son's daughter is Jessica and she loves going for walks with her Grandad it was a must for her. Both she and her younger brother - love looking at the pages and having it read to them. The children in question are aged 5,4 and 2 - I wouldn't really recommend it for older children as the reading content is limited. However, for a lovely 'feelgood' read with little ones it's great.
